An inner-city public high school teacher is committed to her students but desperate to give her only son opportunities they’ll never have. When a controversial incident at his upstate private school threatens to get him expelled, she must confront his rage and her own choices as a parent. But will she be able to reach him before a world beyond her control pulls him away? A deeply moving story of a mother’s fight to give her son a future — without turning her back on the community that made him who he is.
